"With a heavy focus on digital immersion and augmented reality technology, "DA" is primed for the incoming AR revolution, brought upon us by accessible, low cost and ubiquitous AR headsets and lenses.
The genesis occured when I came to a realisation that architectural spaces are not designed for the future - they're not driven by the acceptance and overwhelming capabilities of AR technology.
In a reality where the viewer is the coordinator of their local environment, it only makes sense that AR should be brought in to supplement various wants and needs that might only be temporary. This in turn would drastically reduce material consumption, as a space could be "reskinned" and reshaped according to the viewer's fancy, at any given notice, instantly - all with a digital overlay that one would be convinced is virtually real.
With a footprint of a mere few electrons, the majority of our consumption would be digital. Spaces could be designed to feel great and last a longer time with modular design, with the majority of our needs for aesthetics presented in the digital overlay.
Digital Architecture is in pursuit of a reality that merges the physical with the digital."
